Weird Olympic Sports
Ski jumping involves shooting yourself down a steep incline on two little sticks (some call them skis; were not convinced this is an accurate description given the circumstances), then launching yourself into the air to see how far you can travel. And that tends to be a long, long way. For spectators, its like seeing Superman in action, but without any of the superhuman powers. If hanging in an abyss high above snow-packed ground sounds pleasant, well, this might just be the sport for you. Dont even get us started on ski aerials.
